The SEE, Create, Live the Alternatives Model is the basis for our programs for creating sustainable lifestyle changes.  It is a circular pattern and most often, not always, occurs in order.  Our programs are holistic, including aspects of the body, mind, heart, and spirit.


Incorporating body, mind, heart, and spirit for a whole, complete being.

Body:  The physical and material structure of a person.

Mind: An embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information [as defined by Daniel Siegel, MD].

Heart:  A person’s emotional center, including feelings, emotions, connections.  It also includes our emotional connections and relationships with others.

Spirit: A person’s individual and collective connection with the Divine [God, Allah, Buddha, Beloved, Nature, etc.].


Through Awareness, Learning, Consciousness, and Discovery we can SEE the Unseen, which give us access to Creating & Living the Alternatives!

Awareness:  A state of watching and noticing.

Learning: The act of acquiring or modifying knowledge, skill, or behavior through practice, training, or experience.

Consciousness: awareness of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc.

Discovery: the act of gaining sight or knowledge of something previously unseen or unknown


Creating the Alternatives requires the cultivation of Acceptance, Authenticity, Adaptation and Empowerment.

Acceptance:  Allowing the moment to be as it is right now, without struggle, resistance, or attachment.

Authenticity:  Being real, honest & genuine in our actions, words, and presence – towards ourselves and others; being without pretense or disguise.

Adaptation:  Giving up what no longer works and modifying or adding new action, thoughts, or behaviors.

Empowerment: the process of increasing the capacity of individuals or groups to make choices and to transform those choices into desired actions and outcomes.


Living the Alternatives requires the cultivation of Integrity, Abundance, Thriving, Vitality, and Wellness.

Integrity: a state of being wholeness and unity.

Abundance: an experience of having and being more than enough, plentiful.

Thriving: An experience of flourishing, prospering, growing, and developing

Vitality:  An experience of aliveness and vigor that allows a capacity for growth and life.

Wellness: the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.
